Attractive, WH (Heeres) related-, linnen-based- and/or neatly 'machine-embroidered', beige-white-coloured DRK- (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz'-) armband (ie. 'Armbinde') as was intended for a staff-member serving as a medical orderly
This is an attractive - and truly worn and/or used! - example of a (typical) linnen-based- and/or neatly 'machine-embroidered' WH (Heeres) related, beige-white-coloured DRK- (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz'-) armband (ie. 'Armbinde') as was intended for usage by the various (military) staff-members of the: 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' (or: German Red Cross) and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. clearly issued- and/or just moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. These neat beige-white-coloured and/or: linnen-based armbands showing the (interwoven) red cross were used by the various (army) staff-members serving as medical orderly. The armband on offer here comes in a full-length condition and measures (folded) approximately 35 x 10,5 cms.: it is executed on somewhat 'course-like' linnen (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows some minimal staining ie. dust simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear. This example shows two (bluish-coloured) ink-stamps (ie. 'Dienstsiegel') that have been 'faded-away' during usage and that are impossibe to decypher (as can be seen on the pictures). It comes as worn and/or stored for decades and originates from a private-household somewhere in Germany: it came together with the 'Sanitäter'-related 'Erkennungsmarke' that I offer under number #59374 on the web-site: both items belonged to the same medical-orderly who used both items and stored them as such for decades. Nevertheless, an attractive example of a WH (Heeres) related 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz'-armband that is with certainty accordingly priced!
